by Weathermanon May 24, 2013
So, what’s the first thing you see at Anime Boston 2013?  Bag checks.  I suppose it was only a matter of time, but it’s still sad to see all the same. All things considered it’s not really that big a deal, but it is annoying as this makes getting into the convention take a lot […]

Zenkaikon 2013: Sunday…..guuhhhh…..Sunday

by Weathermanon March 26, 2013
I suppose it’s a mark of a good con when you wake up Sunday morning and want more sleep.  Either than or it mean your roommates get up waaaayyyyy too early and love to chatter.  Or maybe it’s both?  Regardless, Sunday is definitely chilluns time on the con floor as most of the adults are […]

Zenkaikon 2013: Hello from Dutch (Deutch) Country!

by Weathermanon March 23, 2013
Yes, it really should be “Deutch” not “Dutch”.  The Amish are actually German, not Dutch.  Regardless, this is still Pennsylvania Dutch country in the end, so hello from Pennsylvania Dutch country, home this year to Zenkaikon.  In specific we’re in the Lancaster County Convention Center and the associated Marriott hotel, which also oddly doubles as […]
